Cary Historic Properties

How can we program three historic properties to raise awareness of heritage and create vibrant destinations for a growing town? 

Cary, North Carolina| Town of Cary | 20 structures | 83 acres over 3 properties

Awarded the project based on our innovative approach to historic properties, ThoughtCraft is working with the Town and its’ citizens to craft a vision for three historic properties. They include a pre-civil war farmstead, a tobacco era homestead, and a turn-of-the century general store with warehouses. Through research and many interviews we’ve uncovered and documented the rich history of each property that tells the story of Cary from 1820 to 1960. Cary is not laden with historic properties like some of the surrounding towns. As such, the redevelopment of these properties will serve to preserve and educate future generations of its rich history, while providing new uses and amenities for citizens to enjoy.

We look forward to updating you on this exciting project. You may also follow the project and view assessments on the Town of Cary's project webpage.
